Another Hat

I got this yarn from KYS on Ravelry, Sean Sheep Armytage and it's not available in the US and it's a shame, the hat worked out nicely and I preferred how it came out using this rather than the Noro. It's the Rook Hat pattern from Sophie Kessinger and is a free pattern available on Ravelry.

Knit and Crochet standards have the "average" mans head size to be 22", but I have found a lot of men and women need a larger hat, so this one was made bigger with a 24" circumference and I added a crab stitch border at the end. The Armytage I had had more yardage than listed on Rav and one skein made the hat with a bit leftover.

Oh, and yes Jaye, ya smartass, I made and finished an afghan, much to my surprise also. Of course, then Elena put in a request for one in certain colors quickly forgetting the ghan I specially designed and made for her, now she needs one for upstairs and one for downstairs. Maybe for next Christmas was my reply, one adult ghan a year is my limit.

Very pretty hat! I don't have much patience for afghans, either. I started a small ripple "blankie" for my son a year ago, and still need to finish it. It's hard to get motivated when each row takes sooo long!

Nice hat! Too bad the yarn isn't available. Is it Australian, I guess?

How funny... I googled it. It is Australian, but Walmart Canada has it. Plus, it's inexpensive! (From another blog post.) Perhaps in time it'll make it to the US.
